  2. Add the salt. Slowly start adding the flour, about a cup at a time, until a dough forms. 
  3. Put the dough onto a floured work surface. Knead until smooth, then put the dough into an oiled bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour. 
  4. Take the dough out of the bowl and punch it down. Knead again for 2 to 3 minutes. 
  5. Cut the dough in half and put into two oiled loaf pans. Cover and let it rise again for about 30 minutes.
